Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs

Life doesn’t get any similar to using my Air Fryer to hard boil eggs! Once you try this method you will never use another method for hard boiling eggs again. 

I love that I no longer have to wait for the water to boil or my Instant Pot to come to pressure, it is as easy as placing the eggs in the Air Fryer and cooking them to perfection every single time. 

This is just another reason why I love my Air Fryer. These eggs will make for the perfect base of these adorable Hello Kitty Easter Eggs or any of your favorite egg dishes!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • All Air Fryers cook differently. If this is your first time cooking eggs in the Air Fryer I highly recommend doing 1-2 to try it first. Some Air Fryers cook hot while others cook cooler and you will want to find the perfect temperature for your eggs. 
  • You will not want to cook more than 12 at a time. 
  • If your eggs have brown spots this just means you cooked them in a dirty Air Fryer. They will still taste fine. 
  • The ice bath helps the eggs stop cooking quickly and prevents them from overcooking.
